Defoamers are directly used in the production of fried and packaged food items such as nuggets, fries, potatoes, etc., for enhancing their quality. However, the same defoamers are used in manufacturing paper or plastic. Thus, these harsh chemicals can result in a health hazard. The growing awareness about eating healthy and the rising consciousness about the ill-effects of consuming packaged food are anticipated to act as a major restraint for the overall market in the near future.
